LOGAN, Utah - Utah State head football coach Brent Guy announced Monday that Antonio Taylor has been suspended from the program for one year for violation of team rules.
Taylor, a 6-1, 215 pound, senior safety from Pomona, Calif., (Ganesha HS), led USU in tackles last year and the first two games of this season. Last year, Taylor became the first non-linebacker to lead the Aggies in tackles since 1978, recording 74 tackles on the season. This year, Taylor had led USU in both of its games, making 10 tackles in the season-opener against UNLV on Aug. 30, and then a game and career-high 15 stops in Saturday's loss at Wyoming.
Making 17 career starts, Taylor played in 31 career games, logging 211 tackles with three interceptions and nine pass break-ups.
